Cuba celebrates National Rebellion Day

Santiago de Cuba, Jul 26 (RHC) Cubans celebrate today the National Rebellion Day, established in honor of the assault on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes barracks in the east of the island, on this date in 1953.

As in every round anniversary, Santiago de Cuba hosts central activities in remembrance of that action undertaken by a group of young people under the leadership of Fidel Castro.

On Wednesday, the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, Raul Castro, headed in the Segundo Frente municipality of Santiago the provincial rally to commemorate the anniversary.

The celebration of the Day of National Rebellion comes at a special moment for Cuba, marked by a change in the leadership of the State and Government, with the arrival in the presidency last April of Miguel Diaz-Canel, who has sworn allegiance to the legacy of the historical generation of the Revolution.
